๐ŸŒŠ A Family Holiday by the Sea ๐ŸŒŠ

Dunsborough in South West WA is the perfect place for a family holiday. I have just returned from a five day break with the whole family, dear husband, our two children and partners and two grandchildren.

I searched very hard for the best house, it wasn’t easy, as it had to accommodate six adults and two children, be close to the beach and not too far from town! I finally found a four bedroom house just 30 seconds from the beach and a short drive into town. It was called Quindalup Boat House.

We took three cars and many bags and suitcases with us.

Lachie found a very good use for the wine rack

Quindalup Beach

The coast goes on for miles here and is very sheltered making it the ideal place for small children. Lachie and Rosie loved every minute on the beach. It’s great for running and walking.

Over the next few days we visited farms, playgrounds, breweries, pubs and of course the beach everyday. We didn’t always do everything together and gave each other enough space to enjoy our own individual outings.

I think it’s been the one good thing about Covid that Laurence and Maddy were able to join us, having arrived from Melbourne before the borders closed.

Everyone agreed that it was one of the best holidays we’ve ever taken! Over the next few posts I will be writing about some of the places we visited.
